"We will either go to the ballot box or the BULLET box" SERIOUSLY?

Did you email this to DON LEMON (and/or CNN), so he can see what kind of a posse commitatus crackpot was shoving him around the other day? All I can say is, Lemon was lucky he had a camera trained on him, because if he'd run across this flaming asshole on a dark street, with no TV camera he'd probably be in for some rough treatment.

And how many people? This guy chilled me to my bones. There is no place for a bigot like this to be on any police force or in the military (many times one and the same). It seems as though many, if not most, police forces are made up of ex-military. And not the "good" soldiers of which I'm sure there are many, but the ones who came home twisted and sick.

Mix religion, politics, machismo, AND IGNORANCE, and you've got a sure fire recipe for domestic terrorism. ('Domestic' being defined by which country you're living in, of course.)

First this guy waved a BIBLE around and said it was the founding document for the CONSTITUTION (which it wasn't). Next he said that the CONSTITUTION gives them the "right" and responsibility to violently overthrow any government which...(insert favorite phrase here)...which they DON'T LIKE, basically...and BINGO. Apparently GOD has told you it's your RELIGIOUS RESPONSIBILITY to violently overthrow the Federal Government. (There's a DAMNED GOOD REASON the Founders placed a firewall between Church and State.)

Anyway, they KEY ingredient here is IGNORANCE, given that I'd put money on the fact that most of the people in that room have read NEITHER the Bible NOR the Constitution in their entirety; and that they've only taken the word of various DEMAGOGUES (like this a-hole) about what they say. Or they've been fed a steady diet of out of context quotes from the Bible and Constitution by various demagogues.

That's EXACTLY the same formula being used by ISLAMIC terrorist demagogues to incite Muslims to violence. It's a universal formula, and ignorance is the KEY ingredient.

and on active duty long enough to have retired in 2012? It doesn't sound right to me. I fought in Vietnam in 1968 and 1969. I got out when I was 21. I'm 65 now. How old is this guy? When did he serve in Vietnam? Whatever else he is, he's a goddamn disgrace to whatever uniform he's ever worn. Sorry, loud mouth piece of shit.

There is big money behind all of this, as shown in this picture, widely posted:



...The latest evidence comes in the form of this billboard recently installed inside the subway station that serves the Pentagon in Arlington, Va. The billboard was paid for by the Oath Keepers, a "patriot" group founded in 2009 not long after President Obama took office. The controversial organization, founded by a former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) staffer and associated with former militia leaders, encourages members of the military and law enforcement to swear an oath of loyalty to the Constitution, and not necessarily to the Commander in Chief. The Oath Keepers pledge to essentially turn on the US government if they think they're being ordered to do things that they think are unconstitutional, such as, for instance, taking people's guns away.

They arrived on the scene with much fanfare and were often staples at tea party and Second Amendment rallies organized around opposition to the tyrannical Obama administration. Their ranks are filled with Birthers, Truthers, and others who see black helicopters lurking at every turn. Their highest profile associates have been people like Mike Vanderboegh, the former Alabama militia leader who urged followers to throw bricks through the windows of Democratic offices to protest the passage of healthcare reform. (Some actually did.) But the Oath Keepers have since dropped out of the limelight, the dictatorship they were preparing for never quite materializing.

But the group has reemerged with a new project, which involves billboards like the Snowden one at the Pentagon Metro station. The Oath Keepers initially set out to put up billboards around military bases to "Educate Troops About Their Oath Bound Duty to Refuse Unconstitutional Orders," and to "counter the propaganda of the domestic enemies of the Constitution," according to their website. So far this year, they've installed one near the Twenty Nine Palms Marine base in California, with plans to target Ft. Hood, in Texas, and Ft. Rucker in Alabama.

The first billboard went up last year across from Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas, in response to a retired Army colonel who enraged tea partiers and gun activists with a paper he wrote describing a hypothetical scenario in which the military might have to intervene on US soil. The hypothetical involves an "extremist militia motivated by the goals of the “tea party” movement" that takes over a town in South Carolina and starts an insurrection. The "tea party insurrectionists" in the paper sound a lot like the Oath Keepers, who took great offense to the paper and responded with a billboard screaming, "Colonel 'Red Coat' Benson, The Tea Party is Not the Enemy. Soldiers! Honor Your Oath. Refuse To Fire On Americans..."
